Freetown Christiania

Once you’re in Copenhagen and feel the need to find some inspiration, there’s a great place to hang around, view street art, find weird sculptures or just enjoy the nature around. What’s the name of it? Christiania, aka Freetown Christiania.

Christiania is a self-proclaimed autonomous neighbourhood of about 850 residents, covering 34 hectares (84 acres) in the borough of Christianshavn in Copenhagen.

Civic authorities in Copenhagen regard Christiania as a large commune, but the area has a unique status in that it is regulated by a special law, the Christiania Law of 1989 which transfers parts of the supervision of the area from the municipality of Copenhagen to the state. It was closed by residents in April 2011, whilst discussions continued with the Danish government as to its future, but is now open again.

Meditation and yoga have always been popular among the Christianites. Another thing that makes this area so famous is drag, known as Pusher Street, where hash and skunk weed are sold openly.
